Yoga is a wonderful way to open your child to the awareness of their place in the world.  Each class will focus on a lesson or theme and will include creative yoga flow, breath work, games, stories, music, partner/group activities, visualization and relaxation. This week's theme is Dragons, Wizards, and Hagrid! Through yoga, your child will develop strength, flexibility, self-confidence, balance, coordination, focus and discover the ability to feel calm.  Ms. Brandon's playful, gentle style allows children to find a personal connection to their yoga practice.
